The fortunes of non-league football club Salford City FC, and it’s five famous owners – former Manchester United stars Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Gary and Phil Neville – are to be followed again on BBC1.
After its successful first series last autumn, Class Of 92: Out Of Their League will return for a second two-part series this autumn. It will again show the ups and downs of Salford City FC, the famous five former Premiership stars, managers Bernard and Jonno, chairman Karen Baird and of course Babs the tea lady…
The last three-part series left the club celebrating wildly on the final day of the season as they lifted the trophy as champions of the Evo-Stick First Division North league. Now things have moved on dramatically at Moor Lane. With two of their owners now based in Spain and the players becoming local celebrities, have performances on the pitch been affected?
Patrick Holland, Head of BBC Documentaries, says: “The original series took us to the heart of a community where much was at stake as the new owners took over. Not only was it hugely entertaining, it also explored the often difficult relationship between tradition and progress that resonated with the wider audience. We are very excited to return to Salford for another season of highs and lows.”
